I took this course not as a beginner but as someone somewhat advanced in the industry and even at that i was still able to learn new things. Zaga is quite patient, she takes her time to explain things, going over even the seemingly basic stuff. She's an impressive body of knowledge and is willing to share this with her students. Before embarking on this course, i had some reservations but after going through it, i can totally say i got my money's worth and so much more. The course is suitable for both beginners and advanced chandlers alike.

This course was a great decision for me. I got a lot more out of it that I expected and I particularly loved the fact that it's one on one. Definitely worth the investment in yourself and your business if you're looking to be a force in the industry

Zaga is a gem! She is knowledgeable, passionate about perfumery and with a sense of motivation that is quite infectious. Following the perfumery workshop, I am now developing my own scents. I even booked a second workshop to delve deeper. Thank you Zaga. You are an amazing teacher!

Zaga offers a unique opportunity to learn about understanding and creating fragrances. Ideal for learning the basics or developing fragrance-formulating further.

I had a wonderful afternoon exploring fragrances and also being challenged creatively. Thank you!

Deciding to take this course I will say is one of the best decision I have made so far.
Zaga was totally brilliant all the way and ready to answer all my questions patiently no matter how insignificant or silly it was.
I would totally recommend this course to anyone looking to set up their business. It is worth the time and money.

Millie Dobie - - #12578

I absolutely loved my course with Zaga. With no prior knowledge i left with a really thorough understanding of not only what i need to do to make my individual product but the tools needed to get up and running.

Zaga is very knowledgeable and generous with her information and clearly wants others5 to succeed in their ventures.

I would thoroughly recommend this training for anyone looking to build a business from their own unique candles.

I attended this course yesterday and felt that I learnt so much from Zagga. She is warm, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about fragrance and candle making. She made the session fun and relaxing and the 3 hours flew by! I came away with the knowledge to now start my own business and I now know where I was going wrong previously. She cares about what she does and is very passionate about her business. Well worth the trip up to London for the day! Thank you!

Sharon Packman - - #9845

Zaga is warm, welcoming and, above all, very knowledgeable in what she does. I'm sure what she has taught me in a relatively short space of time is going to help me avoid alot of the mistakes I probably would have made without her guidance. I am looking forward to putting into practice what I have learnt. Thank you Zaga!

Ruth Casaletto - - #9212

I searched the internet for a few weeks for various candle making courses. I finally came across her workshops and I instantly knew she was the one! I could see that she offered the complete package. I was sure that I would learn so much more working one to one with her, rather than in a class or online. Zaga exceeded my expectations. She is a professional, passionate perfumer and was keen to impart so many tips and tricks of the trade which are impossible to obtain online or in books. She encouraged me to think outside the box and look at creating perfumes for my candles as a form of art rather than just a science. I went to the workshop thinking I knew exactly what I wanted to do - that all changed within 5 minutes of working with her! I am certain that she has saved me a lot of time and money by teaching me correct procedures and what pitfalls to avoid. Thanks Zaga!

Rusen Boztas - - #9207

This course is great for anyone wanting to learn about Fragrance combining with no knowledge of the field. Zaga was really great to learn from and it was evident she had a passion for fragrance. The course was full of different projects and it was really interesting and exciting when it came to fragrance combining.

Susie - - #8506

Zaga had a professional approach in which you could tell she has a passion for fragrance. She made everything simple to understand and stepped through the stages of determining scents. Scents are very individual and she encouraged this. The application of fragrance to candles was key to this session. This was the unique selling point I wanted to understand. Thank you Zaga for your generous sharing of information.
